Mechanical malfunction caused death of Veteran NASCAR driver Jason Leffler

A mechanical malfunction resulted in a race car crash that killed 37-year-old NASCAR driver Jason Leffler at the Bridgeport Speedway in Logan Township on June 12, according to the New Jersey State police.

Although the reports were incomplete, state police have concluded that a portion of the suspension assembly in Leffler’s race car got stuck somewhere in the steering wheel system. This caused Leffler to lose control at a curve, resulting in his car spinning into a concrete wall at a speed of at least 135 miles per hour. He died of severe neck injuries from the impact.

Jason Leffler, from Long Beach, California, had competed in the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 circuits during his illustrious 14 year racing career, winning twice in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and once in the Truck Series.
